I've blogged at length before about the language of electrocution and how I think construing such violence as "tasering" mildly sanitizes it by associating it with high-tech portable weaponry/gadgetry. Oddly enough, readers of the blog currently masquerading as Metaspencer Got Blog may recall that I've also blogged at length about anti-skateboarding signage. (In fact, it's weird, but about fifty hits a day come in via the images on that post. Go fig.)
I would never have guessed that Metaspencer Got Blog (MGB) would someday be titled as such and become a convergence point for news about electrocuted students and anti-skateboarding signage, but that day has arrived.
The screams in the video are painfully reminiscent of what the voltage did back at UCLA.
